GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – Construction on the Titletown District next to Lambeau Field accelerated Thursday with the property’s third groundbreaking.

Bellin Health celebtrated construction of the Bellin Health Sports Medicine and Orthopedics Center to the west of the stadium.

The Packers’ longtime team physician says the state-of-the-art facility near the stadium is a dream come true.

“I am so excited about this. This is a great day. This is a really unique opportunity for a community the size of Green Bay. Normally we can’t get this kind of deal,” Dr. Pat McKenzie said.

The clinic won’t just be for Packers players but for everyone in the community.

Packers president/CEO Mark Murphy said the pairing of the Packers and Bellin Health was a no-brainer for the community.

“One of the key contributors to in terms of the growth and development of the Packers and Lambeau Field has been Bellin Health,” Murphy noted. “The other thing that our two organizations will continue to promote is good health, and collaborate on healthy activities here in Titletown.”

Bellin joins Kohler Lodge and Hinterland in the Packers-owned Titletown District, which is expected to be open to the public by the start of next year’s training camp.

You can expect to see similarities between the Bellin sports medicine center and Lambeau Field, as Murphy says the brick and glass health center is modeled after our favorite stadium.
